Formation and Dissociation of Hydrate Plugs in a Water in Oil Emulsion

  title={Formation and Dissociation of Hydrate Plugs in a Water in Oil Emulsion},
  author={Annie Fidel-Dufour and Duc Nguyen-Hong and J. M. Herri},
In this paper, we present experimental results of the formation and dissociation of methane hydrate plugs in a semi-batch reactor. The plugs are done from water in heptane emulsion (water content from 30 %). The experimental results shows that the formation rate and dissociation rate are controlled by the heat transfer at the wall of the reactor. An unexpected behaviour is observed as the temperature decreases under the 0°C temperature during dissociation and seems to form ice which slows down… 
Formation and Transportation of Methane Hydrate Slurries in a Flow Loop reactor : Influence of a Dispersant
In this paper, we present the experimental results obtained from a new flow loop reactor in which methane hydrate particles are crystallized in water droplets transported in a oil flow. The final
As the world?s appetite for energy continues to grow, oil and gas developments are moving to ever deeper subsea environments, thereby causing hydrates-related issues to become a growing concern for
Etude de la cinétique de formation des hydrates de méthane dans les fluides de forage off-shore par analyse calorimétrique différentielle haute pression
Les fluides de forage a base d’huile sont utilises lors d’operations de forage off-shore. Ils permettent de lubrifier l’outil de forage, d’evacuer les deblais ainsi que de maintenir une pression
